An introduction to


What is Aeropress?

In terms of extraction, the Aeropress offers versatility and precision. The ultra-fine filter prevents sediment from remaining in the coffee, similar to the V60 method, bringing more crisp and pronounced flavors out of your coffee.

This method also makes use of precisely measured coffee to water ratios, allows the coffee to bloom and degas, and facilitates an even agitation and water exposure to the grounds. These elements of quality, combined with the vessel's ease of use and portability are what has defined the reputation of Aeropress coffee So, let’s get started.

Our Recommendations

While your home equipment may seem sufficient, we have outlined our recommended line-up below if you want to dial-in your coffee equipment.

The Aeropress vessel is made of a a tube, plunger, and filter. It has a sleek design and is both durable and easy to clean. This makes it ideal for brewing quality coffee with minimal investment, or even brewing on the go.

For a coffee grinder, it would be difficult to beat the quality of the Baratza Encore for the price. It is hands-down the most affordable quality grinder on the market, and it yields consistent and even grinds. 

Since precision is essential to a quality brew, you may consider a Brewista Ratio Scale for its precise measurements. This coffee scale has the ability to give your pouring speed when using pour over brew methods, which optimizes extraction time for the perfect cup. 

The whole bean coffee you use with the Aeropress method can vary to your taste. However, since the Aeropress is capable of pulling out exquisite flavors, we'd suggest a complex high-altitude coffee with a medium to light roast profile. You can find these qualities in our Bolivia, Dominican Republic, and Ethiopia beans, giving you the most flavor for your Aeropress experience.
